One of Sofi Tukker’s new songs, “Fuck They”, off their recent album makes BLEND’s radar this month with it’s energetic, electric beats that will instinctively force you to dance. The duo, who met in college at Brown University, were even nominated for a Grammy before their first album release. Whether you need to wake up on your way to work or a beat to keep your sweaty gym session steady, Sofi Tukker’s funky 90’s house-pop will give you what you need.
If you haven’t already jammed out to Young the Giant, this is your time to discover an alt band who makes you feel alive. On their fourth studio album release, the song, “Superposition”, along with the rest of their music, explores and demonstrates the wild adventures of life and making peace with ambitious relationships. Young the Giant is simply a necessity for any road trip you may be taking soon for the holidays.
The Hungarian-American artist, Empress Of, makes BLEND’s radar this month with her feminine electropop song, “I Don’t Even Smoke Weed”. The combination of her passionate and introspective lyrics with a solid pop base makes her music relatable yet danceable as well. Empress Of uses her ethnic background to add an extra flare to her music with verses of Spanish in several songs, making her definitely an artist to look out for.
